Synopsis

Spelling Teacher's Guide by Carol Matchett

Ideal for whole-school use, the Schofield & Sims Spelling programme gives pupils extensive practice in using their phonic knowledge to spell words, preparing them for the English grammar, punctuation and spelling tests towards the end of Key Stage 2. The pupil books systematically introduce and revise spelling conventions, explore word structure and the relationship between words of shared origin, suggest strategies for remembering common 'exception words' (or 'tricky words'), teach pupils how to monitor their own spelling, and encourage them to write sentences from memory or dictation. Based on the model 'teach - practise - apply - assess', Schofield & Sims Spelling is a comprehensive and high-quality programme that helps all pupils to develop and consolidate their spelling skills, significantly improving their results in the national tests. This Teacher's Guide provides detailed teaching notes that: suggest how best to introduce each learning point or 'focus'; clarify the detail of the focus and exactly what should be taught; provide activities, including dictations, which reinforce and help children to remember spellings. The book also describes the process of learning to spell and shows how the teaching model may be implemented. Guidance is given on such issues as differentiation and spelling in the context of writing and a 'Scope and sequence' chart summarises the content of each pupil book.
